I don't know where the green coach came from. I bought it in a lot at a yard sale, but it was the closest match to Emily from what I have to work with. All of the other engines are operational. It wasn't until after I filmed that I thought about running multiple engines. Thanks for the tip with the stop track. I saw someone else do that too. Will use it in the future. The video was sort of an impromptu test using and old iPhone 5 camera. It came out pretty well.

Very nice video Bob and please pass these sentiments on to Ed when next you see him.

That is an interesting Coach and it doesn't look like the one that came with Emily. Does it look to be custom painted Bob or factory?

Upon closer inspection it appears to be a knock-off brand. When I made that big garage sale purchase last month I noticed some of the blue track was knock-off as well, slightly different color blue and no 'Tomy' branding. So I'm guessing this coach came with whatever set that track was in.

Ah, maybe thats it. The wheel color looks off along with that coupler. Does the shell pop off and if it does is there any details inside like seats?

I popped the shell off. No interior details. I went back through the items I have and found a second bottom chassis identical to this but no upper shell for it. Guess that will become a 'custom' at some point.

You are probably right Bob as this looks to be a knockoff, is it bigger that the regular Annie/Clarabel coaches? I must admit that this coach seems familiar to me like I have either seen one before or we have discussed one before. Thanks for the info.

Thanks Bob, In my eyes that confirms the green one is from a knockoff set like the Dumica's.
